I only watched a bit of Foy, but, I remember his speed being one of the issues that about him. I remember it by cited as a reason he wasn't considered for the WJC for Canada that year. It's quite possible that those issues were overblown, and, by the time he showed up to the Wild's camp, he had improved in those areas. He was always a player that appeared to work hard on the ice, so, it would be no suprise if he worked hard off the ice to improve in any areas that he felt he needed to.
